In 2016, Hrithik Roshan's film Mohenjo Daro clashed with Akshay Kumar's Rustom at the box office. While Rustom faired well, Mohenjo Daro was highly unsuccessful. What's interesting is the contemporary actors happen to be neighbours and there was never bad blood between them even after this major clash.
Today, Akshay Kumar announced the schedule of his films in 2017 and one which happens to be produced by his wife Twinkle Khanna. Titled Pad Man, Akshay's film is based on a story from Twinkle's second book, The Legend of Laxmi Prasad, ‘The Sanitary Man from the Sacred Land,’ which in turn is based on the life of Arunachalam Muruganantha, the man who campaigned extensively for menstrual hygiene in rural India.
Twinkle took to twitter to share the news and Hrithik Roshan chimed in to have a funny banter with his neighbour. Firstly, Hrithik congratulated Twinkle on her new venture and also asked her to write a 2 hero film. Twinkle Khanna had a response for Hrithik Roshan in her own witty way.
